[Hope] New technology to charge your phone with your hot coffee or cold beer

[Hope] New technology to charge your phone with your hot coffee or cold beer

Fukushima Diary believes in small things (Small is the new big). I would like to introduce the new way of generating power independent from mass production.
On kickstarter, the attempt to develop a new heat engine technology was posted. Here I would like to share the hope.
Needless to say, Fukushima Diary doesn’t receive any kickback from them.


The Epiphany onE Puck connects to your iPhone, Android, or similar device. Setting up onE Puck is as easy as connecting the onE Puck to your phone and applying heat or cold. That’s it.

·All iPhones
·All iPods
·All Android phones
-Any device that uses a USB charger drawing 1000 mA or less

Where do we stand?
We’ve been working in research and development on heat cycles and engine technology for more than 12 years now. Most of the research going on in this industry is related to much larger engines. The onE Puck, in this tiny form, is a new idea for Epiphany, but the concepts behind it are nothing new. So far, we have developed the first working onE Puck prototype. The onE Puck is at the real, working prototype stage right now, which is as close as we can get it to the production version without raising the funds we need.
With your support, we can bring the Epiphany onE Puck to the worldwide marketplace. As we embark on mass production, your contribution will help to fund:
Final design modifications including engine optimizations
Production tooling
Raw material orders
Decent pay for our poor, disheveled engineers

Le Fukushima Diary croit dans les petites choses (Petit est le nouveau grand). Je voudrais vous présenter un nouveau moyen de faire du courant indépendamment de la production de masse.
Chez kickstarter, une tentative de développement d’un nouvel appareil  à technologie basée sur la chaleur a été publié. Ici, je voudrais partager l’espoir.
Il va sans dire que le Fukushima Diary n’en reçoit strictement rien en retour.


Le Epiphany onE Puck se connecte à votre iPhone, Android, ou tout appareil similaire. Configurer le onE Puck est aussi facile que de connecter le onE Puck à votre téléphone et d’y appliquer de la chaleur ou du froid. C’est tout.

·Tous les iPhones
·Tous les iPods
·Tous les téléphones Android
-Tout appareil utilisant un chargeur USB délivrant 1000 mA ou moins

Où sommes-nous ?
Nous travaillons en recherche et développement sur les cycles de chaleur et la technologie des appareillages depuis plus de 12 ans à présent. La plupart des recherches en cours dans cette industrie concernent des appareillages beaucoup plus gros. Le onE Puck, dans sa déclinaison minuscule, est une idée nouvelle pour Epiphany mais les concepts qui la sous-tendent n’ont rien de nouveau. Pour le moment, nous avons développé le premier prototype fonctionnel du onE Puck. Le onE Puck est en fait, juste à l’état de prototype fonctionnel c’est à dire au plus près de ce que nous le pouvons de la phase de production sans lever les fonds dont nous aurions besoin.
Avec votre aide, nous pouvons mettre le Epiphany onE Puck sur le marché mondial. Comme nous nous lançons dans la production de masse, votre contribution aiderait à financer :
Les dernières modifications de design y compris les optimisations de l’appareil
Les outils de production
Les commandes des matériaux de base
Le marketing
Des payes décentes pour nos pauvres ingénieurs débraillés

Si vous envisagiez de donner au Fukushima Diary, merci d’envisager de les aider eux aussi → http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/epiphanylabs/epiphany-one-puck



About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
